..."the collection represents a valuable contribution to the literature and will continue to provide reminders of the complexity that characterized the provision of care for the mentally ill in the nineteenth century.--Matthew Gambino, ISIS, 2001."
This guide to work in the social and cultural history of insanity, provides a comprehensive summary of the debates on the growth of institutional care during the 19th and 20th centuries. Looking at the English model in terms of the significance of ethnicity, race and gender as well as political and cultural factors, the book also features studies in Wales, Scotland, Ireland, India and South Africa, and analyses the history of colonial medicine more generally.See all Product description
